Minion Core Functions

It is IMPORTANT that you READ THIS FIRST : Basic Bot Settings

IMPORTANT SETTINGS

  • SET ALL GRAPHICS TO LOW
  • FFXIV uses a lot of memory and has a bad memorymanagement itself, in order to prevent crashes, set your graphics to the lowest level possible.
  • MAKE SURE TO CHECK THE “use low-detail models” AND THE “cache lod data” option!! This saves a lot of memory.


puu.sh_rc0ni_4af000522c.jpg

  • MAKE SURE TO NOT HAVE LEGACY CONTROLS ENABLED!!!


Grind Mode



1. First thing you are gonna want to do is set the bot mode to Grind

2. Once you have set the Bot Mode to Grind you will need to select the navmesh for the zone you are in. Open hte Mesh Manager by clicking Advanced Settings

3. Once you select the Navmesh for the zone you are in(or area you want to grind at) confirm the mesh loaded correctly by clicking “Show NavMesh”

4. Once you confirmed you are on the correct NavMesh you will need to place Markers for each area in the zone that you want to grind at. You can set these based on level ranges or by time. Locate the Marker Manager by clicking on Advanced Settings.
5. You want to set the Marker Mode to List if you are going to run multiple markers for different level ranges or times. Set the marker mode to single if you are going to stay at one marker only. Set the marker Type to Grind Marker then Click New Marker.

6. Once you click new marker you can edit the marker for your desired effect. Here I've set the first marker level range 36-40 It will Grind at this marker till it dings 41 at which point it will move on to the next marker that is 41-45

7. Once you have your marker manager set up with the list of markers you want to use for grinding you need to select a skill profile for the class you are running.The Skill Manager is located under Advanced Settings. If its the default profile you want to run when this class is loaded tick that box and tick the enabled box.

8. After you have selected your Skill manager profile for the class you are running all thats left is to enable the bot by pressing the start/stop button.



Fates

In addition to grinding at Grind Markers you can also have the bot Do Fates in between killing mobs.
1. To enable Fate grinding locate the “Settings” options on the main bot window.

2. Expand this option window and put a tick in “Do Fates”

3. Furthermore if you want the bot to ignore all grind markers you can put a tick in Fates Only.



Atma Farming

If you happen to be on the Atma quest chain you can enable Do Atma and the bot will change zones after you loot the Atma quest reward from your current zone(lvl 50 characters only)

Grind Options:

1. Prioritize Claims: works with Content ID from your grind markers. When Enabling Prioritize Claims the bot will try and gather all mobs within the Claim Range that match the content ID you put on the grind marker. Claim Range sets how far the bot will look for Mobs when you enable Prioritize Claims. Attack Claimed will attack mobs that are claimed by other people/groups.
2. Combat Range% is for ranged classes. This setting is % value of your max range. so if your max range is 25yalm setting this setting to 90% will have you try to attack the mob when you are about 20 Yalms away.


FATE Options:

1. Rest in fates will enable you to rest when the HP/MP% value is reached after combat while doing fates.
2. MaxFatelvl:+ is how many levels above your current level you want to do fates. For example if you are level 20 and set it to +5 it will do fates up to level 25.
3. MinFatelLvl- is how many levels below your current level you want to do fates. For example if you are level 20 and you set it to -5 it will do fates as low as lvl 15.
4. WaitForcomplete% the bot will run to the edge of the fate and wait for what ever value you place in this box. For example 5%, the bot will wait till 5% of the fate is completed before joining.
5. Teleport % If the fate reaches a certain completed % the bot will simply telepot straight into the fate instead of running to it. Teleport must be on and no players within 30y of you.
6. Wait Near Evac: If this is enabled you will wait near your Evac point.
7. Min/Max Random Delay, The amount of time when a fate spawns your bot will wait before taking off to the fate. I.E. if you set it to 5/10 it will wait a random amount of time between 5seconds and 10 seconds to head to the fate.


DETAILS:
Here you can choose which fate types you wish to do, or what % of completion each specific fate is at before attempting to join it.



Party Grind Mode



To set up Party Grind you need to set the Bot Mode to Party-grind.

Party Grind is for Grinding open world and requires a Navmesh to work. A typical set up would consist of a leader bot on Grind, or a player playing manually. Then other bots in party.


By using “Use Party Leader” and all grouped up the bots set to party grind will follow the leader around attack what the leader attacks.

Another set up for party grind would be boosting a lower level character with a higher level character. To do this the Higher level character would have to be out of party. So you would set the higher level character to party grind remove the tick in “Use Party Leader” then Target the character you want to follow and hit Target→Leader. This will cause the higher level bot to follow the lower level character around and kill what it kills.



Fishing



Fishing is very simple to set up. First Set the Bot Mode to Fish.


Next click Marker Manager(if you have any questions about settings here you should read the Marker Manager tutorial)


Select the Marker you wish to edit or Create a new marker.

Example: Here is an example of a Gathering Marker. As you can see the Gather Manager has been removed. The priority of items that you wish to gather is now controlled by the marker and Marker Manager. Just like the Grind Marker above you have similar settings a couple new ones and a unique way to use some of the settings here are some examples.

  1. ContentID=: Example Gather Marker, if you put the ContentID here for the Tree nodes it will only Gather this type of node(Whitelist target will auto add the content ID for your target in to this field)
  2. NOT ContentID=: Example Gather Marker, if you put the ContentID here for the Tree nodes it will ignore this type of node.

However Added to the Gathering Markers are your priority list (also Stealth and Mooch will be found on the edit marker, gather Maps by type is also found here, along with Gathering Gardening materials, further more you can set skill profiles on a marker basis.




  1. Item Priority 1: Is the item name you wish to gather above anything else.(example: Iron Ore NOT iron ore)
  2. Item Priority 2: Is the item name you wish to gather if the first item is not present.


In this case here the marker is in the middle of 2 different types of botanist nodes. I can set Priority 1 to be the item i want to gather from trees and the Priority 2 to be the item i want to gather from the bushes.



A Navigation Mesh or short NavMesh defines the ground on which the bot can walk. It sits ontop of the level geometry like a second skin and is used for the calculations needed in order to move the bot freely around through the gameworld and to avoid obstacles etc.

www.mmominion.com_media_ffxivminion_tutorials_mesher2.jpg

A Navmesh is created from multiple Triangles as basis geometry. With the included MeshManager you are able to create and modify the triangles for the navmesh. After creating enough Triangles, you need to save them ( they will be saved inside the \Navigation\ folder as xxx.obj file). When you press the Save button (or when loading the first time a navmesh), the Real Navmesh will automatically build from the Triangles, this Navmesh is being used for the bot to navigate on.

www.mmominion.com_media_ffxivminion_tutorials_mesher1.jpg
In order for the bot to move intelligently over the maps, avoid obstacles or dangerous areas, walk safely on roads without encountering enemies or even being able to jump down ledges or over obstacles, the NavMesh/Triangles can be recorded with different Area-Types, which you can see on the screenshot above.

  1. Road: Use this for safe roads or places that have no enemies around.
  2. Low danger: This is the default area type, use this for most of your parts.
  3. High danger: Use this for places which for example have an enemy elite/boss where your bot will probably die when he is alone.
  4. Off Mesh Connections: These can be used for letting the bot know that he has to jump from A to B or jump down a ledge (but never try to go up that way). Read more on them below.

Create your own navmesh:

  1. Click on Advanced Settings.
  2. Click on MeshManager.
  3. Click on the Editor Settings Tab
  4. If you have already a navmesh loaded for the zone you are in, press the Clear Navmesh button to make a fresh start. Next Click Show Triangles “ and Enable “Nav Mesh”. By default the Record mode area type is set to Low danger. The Record Size is the radius around your player where it will place triangles automatically. Increase/Decrease this according to your needs.
  5. Now start moving your character and it will automatically place the Triangles around your player. If you continue to record on an already existing mesh or at a different spot, you can force the placement of Triangles by holding down CTRL.


  1. CTRL: Force placement of Triangles, be careful in using that, it can produce unusable navmesh connections / triangles which will break the navigation of the bot if your character cant walk along these triangles! So use this only when there is no other way and make sure you cleanup / remove not walkable Triangles!!!
  2. Change Mesh, Change Type and Change Size: can be used to change the Area Type of already placed Triangles around your player, or Delete mesh around your player if you set it to Delete.
  3. Add OffMeshConnection: Press this button once where you want the bot to start his jump, then move your player where the bot should land, and press this button again. A new connection between these two points will now be shown. Use this to let the bot know where he can jump over or jump down. By default the bot will only jump from start to endpoint, if you want him to be able to jump into both directions, enable the “Bidirectional Off mesh Connection” checkbox, then record the Connection.
  4. Del OffMeshConnection: Walk to either the Start or the End of an Off Mesh Connection and press this button to remove the connection. Note: Each Navmesh can hold only a max of 255 connections!
  5. When you are done creating enough Triangles, Stop the recording and press the Save NavMesh button in the MeshManager. The NavMesh will now be build from your Triangles.
  6. Click the “Show Real Navmesh” checkbox to see the new navmesh.
  7. Done! you have created your own navmesh and the bot can now start using it!
  8. You can set your evac point by pressing the evac button.

  4. Nav: Setting a NaV steps instructs the bot to navigate to specific x,y,z cords ( this typically wont ever be used the bot knows how it needs to navigate to get from one map id to the next.)
  5. Interact: Able to use this to interact with NPCs for quests or Objects for quets. Like say you have to untie some NPCs or you need to interact with items on the ground, you would use this task. Can add a delay in (ms) before moving to the next item/npc for the cast time of the interact.
  6. Kill: This task is used for kill count quests target the mob and add how many you are suppose to kill for the Kill count and then add step.
  7. Complete: This task is used for turning in the quest once you have completed it. here you set hte map id mesh name and NPC ID that you need to turn the quest in to, also reward slot.

At the bottom of the Step Manager you have edit Turn-ins. This is where you add the Id Number of the items and which slot the go into. So say you have to pick up 3 items from a quest to turn in to an NPC, This is where you set up The ID+Slot in the turn in window to the NPC.

Blacklist




Alows you to Black list certain fates, mobs, aoes. You set the Blacklist name drop down menu to select the different things you want to black list. then you the add entry section to select the exact mob or fate or aoe you wish to black list. Use the Delete entry button to remove the item from the black list.

Multibot




Works with the Multibot server, you can add specific bots to certain teams so that they can communicate with each other. this is a very advanced feature and requires Multibot server set up and one of 2 Lua Addons to make use of the connection. Basically the Multibot manager is just a tool to set up the connection in its self it does not perform any other tasks then communicating with the multibot server and joining specific groups.

Use this addon http://www.mmominion.com/Thread-Module-Controller-1-07 to control multiple bots from one bot.

This is a small module I built to utilize the multibot server that is not used in FFXIV currently. The initial release only does 3 things, but it is expandable, customizable, and allows users to add their own files in as well.

The controller addon will allow users with the click of one button to accomplish things such as: - Stop/Starting all bots. - Reloading modules on all bots. - Re configure bot teams for duty without having to access your team mate's computer. - Returning all bots to a certain location - The list goes on.. any and all things that require inter-bot communication can be accomplished (generally speaking).

Installation

Module should be installed into the <Your Minion Directory>\LuaMods\Controller.

Top Level View:

Inner View:

Custom Handlers (1 provided, all customs placed here):

Server Setup - Local

To start, you will need the MultibotComServer application, which must be started, and settings.ini file configured however you'd like it to be (mostly you need to know/set the password in the [server] section).

Multibot Manager Setup

The multibot manager UI can most easily be found by going to the LuaMods in the top bar. You will need to enter the IP address, port, password and channel.

Bots will only receive commands from bots in their channel, so make sure you join the correct channel. The channel name should also be unique enough to avoid overlap with other teams if using a hosted/shared server.

First things first you will want to click the Advanced Settings Tab.

You should get a window that looks like this.

The advanced settings window contains settings that are typically GLOBAL settings. These settings will effect every mode you are in. Unlike the settings tab that shows up on the main bot window which are specific settings that only effect the mode you are currently in.


BotStatus: This is kinda a settings and information tab. It will give you information about what current taks you are in, marker name/timer, game time along with counts and timers for the current task you are doing. This is where you can enable log and cne log, so that you can get more information on what currently the bot is doing.(helpfull information when you are reporting a bug)
